Nyonya is a model of Chinese-Malay efficiency: The cheerful staff zooms customers through seating, eating and paying up—to make room for the next batch. The only downside to a speedy kitchen that serves everything piping hot: burning your tongue while wolfing down delicious dishes like roti canai, nasi lemak (coconut rice) and battered, fried whole fish drizzled in spicy-sweet sauce.
